All the fun of the fair….

Thank you so much to everyone who helped support our Christmas Fair on Friday.  It was a very busy event and you certainly came out to support us on a very cold and wet  evening!  We don’t have a total raised yet but I wanted you to know that the money will go towards further developing our market garden and outdoor learning spaces.  We are hoping to have our very own poly tunnel to grow even more vegetables and make some sensory enquiry spaces around the grounds. The money raised will provide us with tools, planting beds, compost and more seeds and shrubs.

Friday was a very busy day indeed – we were visited by Key 103 at lunchtime who recorded a special podcast of OJ switching on our Christmas Lights draped around the first 100 of our new shrubs and trees.  Thank you to Lucy and her Mum for mentioning us to the radio DJ when he appealed for places to visit to switch on the lights.  We had a grand countdown and in the daylight our lights twinkled a little – but that certainly didn’t dampen our spirits.  We are waiting for the podcast to be sent to school and once it is I will post it for you to hear.

Well, school certainly has a festive feel to it – our wonderful KS2 Choir will be performing at The Bridgewater Hall tonight as part of a special concert to support Clic Sargent – one of our charities.  This continues the wonderful singing at Norbury after a delightful Christmas Service at Norbury Church for Y6 learners last week.  The service was beautiful and our Y6 singers were excellent.  Thank you to the staff, children and their parents for supporting us with these events – it makes a special time of year even more special.

There is, of course, lots more to look forward to.  We have our Early Years Performances this Wednesday and our KS2 Carol Service on Friday afternoon at Norbury Church.  Next week we have our KS1 Performances on Monday and Tuesday and all the following excitement of the week before Christmas.

I am sure I will have lots more to post before we finish for the holidays but in the meantime I hope you are all enjoying the festivities at this fabulous time of year.
